How have you been? Sorry I haven't blogged in a long time. It's been a very busy week and I have only just stopped! It's been full of lovely things and I've had a great time. But sometimes being busy is too much for me! I'm looking forward to a quieter week!
I have lots to blog about but I will spread it out over the next few days, just to keep you all in suspense!
Today I wanted to show you the fantastic freecycle bits I picked up earlier in the week....
A huge pile of very useful cookbooks! So huge they broke the bag! I'm especially looking forward to looking through the Delia Cookbook and Britain's Best Dish Cookbook! I need to hold some dinner parties to try them out!
My cat Anya kept creeping into the pictures! She obviously wanted to be featured on my blog, so I thought I'd show you this one!
And then there were these beauties.... I'm not sure what to do with them... I don't think I'd use any of them in their current forms - any ideas? The tea cosy is useable but a bit stained (despite a good wash) so what could I do with it?
A silky table runner with beautiful embroidered flowers! This is good quality so could stay as it is, but I have no use for it. I'm happy to cut it up to make something else?
A tablecloth with cross-stitched flowers - has quite a few holes so needs to be cut up and made into something pretty and new... what could I use it for?
And another tablecloth with embroidered flowers! Lovely lace round the edge too. I would happily unpick the lace to use at our wedding, but what can I do with the rest?
I need lots of ideas ladies and know you are the people to tell me! Please help!
